    “Enjoyable winter break .”

    Property nice only issues are the downstairs toilet is a problem as itdoesn't flush properly . Would also recommend you take own towels as ones provided poor quality.

The property

A fabulous old cottage on three floors, in the South Town area of Dartmouth, close to the water’s edge, with far reaching views across the stunning River Dart estuary.

Just a short stroll from the heart of Dartmouth, this cottage is ideal for two to four people keen to soak up the laid-back atmosphere of the town.

The quirky character cottage has been furnished to a high standard, providing a stylish holiday home in a quiet location.

It is approached from Nelson's Steps, a narrow alleyway off South Town, and the entrance door leads into a small lobby with stairs winding up to the first floor, where you will find a double en-suite bedroom with superb estuary views.

On the second floor is a spacious open plan living area which is light and airy, having a vaulted beamed ceiling and excellent views across the Dart; you will want to spend hours gazing at the yachts and vessels heading towards Kingswear.

The living area has two large sofas, one of which is a sofa bed ideal for an extra guest.

Also completing the second floor is a single bedroom and a bathroom.

The town and riverside is just a 5 minute walk where there are excellent restaurants, interesting boutique shops and of course all the activities along the waterfront, including sailing and river cruises up the Dart to Greenway (Agatha Christie’s former holiday home).

The Dartmouth area offers a wide range of days out including wine and cheese tasting at the award-winning Sharpham vineyard, exotic gardens open to the public and wonderful walks along the South West Coast path.

Also within reach is the stunning beach at Blackpool Sands, which is one of South Devon’s most beautiful natural treasures, with it being set in a sheltered bay, surrounded by evergreens and pines.

A pretty, character Devon cottage.

About the location


Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular sandy beaches are a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
